Holiday turkey meals have been linked to outbreaks of Salmonella and Campylobacter.
Following steps to safely thaw, prepare, and cook your bird can reduce the risk of making people ill.
Thaw your turkey in the fridge, microwave, in cool water, or on the counter.
Clean utensils and work surfaces after preparing raw turkey for roasting.
Wash your hands after getting the turkey ready.
Cook your turkey to an internal temperature of 165F.
